Introduction to Knickerbocker Group

The Knickerbocker Group offers quality design and construction services from concept to completion.

Based in Boothbay, Maine for over a quarter of a century, we have consistently completed projects recognized for their innovation and excellence throughout the coastal region.

Our Mission

Knickerbocker Group’s mission is to meet our clients’ expectations by creating the finest quality building using the combined power of vision and craftsmanship.

Our Philosophy

Building design is an organic process involving owner, architect and builder in an ongoing conversation. In that regard, architecture is as much about communication as it is about construction.

As the plans are drawn, the vision changes; as a building takes shape, the vision becomes refined. Successful projects require an understanding of the dynamics that alter the vision, and we come to each project prepared to adjust the process without diminishing the quality of the product. It requires careful management of the owner-architect-builder discussion to ultimately deliver the client’s dream.

The Knickerbocker Family


While the varied disciplines of the Knickerbocker Group offer an efficient "one stop shop" for those who combine all of our services, we regularly cater to those who prefer to employ only one or some of our divisions.

Knickerbocker Design

We provide complete professional design and planning services to guide you through your project. The scope can include any of the following:

  • Complete homes
  • Additions
  • Major & minor renovations
  • Kitchens & Baths
  • Architectural Woodworking
  • Site Planning & Civil Engineering
  • Environmental & Regulatory Permitting

Our “style” is truly your vision. We pride ourselves in creating owner-driven designs based on images and lifestyle preferences you convey to us. Many of our projects have a shingle/cottage/Maine coastal theme because that is frequently the ideal of our client. The most exciting part of our work is discovering your dreams and finding a way to make them real.

Boothbay Home Builders

Boothbay Home Builders was established in 1978, and has spent the last quarter century building a reputation for constructing distinctive custom homes throughout Midcoast Maine. Today, over 20 highly skilled carpenters, supported by a full-time office staff, combine craftsmanship with professional fiscal management to deliver a quality product on time, and within budget.

  • Complete homes
  • Additions & Renovations
  • Light Commercial
  • Construction Management

Our experience has allowed us to build strong relationships with all subcontracted trades required in a construction project. We are happy to work with the plumbers, electricians, etc. that are already familiar to you and with your property; we can recommend those we feel will be the best fit for you; or we can bid among several.

Knickerbocker Woodworking

A beautiful home's exterior is important, but life is lived inside. The interior is where we eat, sleep, entertain and unwind. Established as a logical spin-off of Boothbay Home Builders in 1985, Knickerbocker Woodworking has become known throughout New England for its exquisite architectural woodwork products.

  • Kitchens
  • Baths
  • Dens
  • Libraries
  • Custom furniture
  • Paneling
  • Bookcases
  • Entertainment centers
  • Fireplace mantels

Custom interiors are extensions of the people who inhabit them. Our team of talented designers and craftsman can create custom woodwork and cabinetry to fit specific needs-whether in a traditional Maine coast cottage, or the salon of a boat. Capturing the essence of the design is what we have been doing for two decades. This experience, combined with our appreciation of Maine’s time-honored styles and rich architectural heritage, ensures a vision is crafted beautifully.
